Toolkit for nucleic acid k-mer analysis, set operations on k-mers

unikmer is a golang package and a toolkit for nucleic acid k-mer analysis, providing functions including set operation k-mers sketch optional with TaxIds but without count information.

K-mers are either encoded k<=32 or hashed arbitrary k into uint64, and serialized in binary file with extension .unik.

TaxIds can be assigned when counting k-mers from genome sequences, and LCA Lowest Common Ancestor is computed during set opertions including computing union, intersecton, set difference, unique and repeated k-mers.
